Capture a series of still images

Post by SierraFoothills » Sat Apr 30, 2022 10:14 pm

Is it possible to capture a series of images at a timed interval (say one a minute) and have a single name and send it to a directory on the computer and overwrite the last image with the new.

I want to use it for a webcam on my weather station. I have a 32 bit Vidium card that does that with an analog video camera but I am upgrading the computer to 64 bit Windows 10.

Thanks
Mike

It works wonderfully well. Set the total number of captured images to 0 and it overwrites the previous image with a 0 (zero) after whatever you name it (webcam0.jpg). Set to start at logon was exactly what I was looking for.
